theres little or no HFS+ support in any Linux distro, tho its ok with the kernel
heres how to build a fsck for hfsplus
using this
wget http://darwinsource.opendarwin.org/tarballs/apsl/diskdev_cmds-332.14.tar.gz
wget http://www.ecl.udel.edu/~mcgee/diskdev_cmds/diskdev_cmds-332.14.patch.bz2
tar zxf diskdev_cmds-332.14.tar.gz
bunzip2 -c diskdev_cmds-332.14.patch.bz2 | patch -p0
cd diskdev_cmds-332.14
make -f Makefile.lnx
sudo cp fsck_hfs.tproj/fsck_hfs /usr/local/sbin/fsck.hfsplus

(yes, fsck programs shouldn't usually go anywhere except /sbin)
doing fsck.hfsplus, with no arguments gives:
[no manpage,see]

# fsck.hfsplus
fsck.hfsplus: missing special-device
usage: fsck.hfsplus [-dfl m [mode] npqruy] special-device
d = output debugging info
f = force fsck even if clean (preen only)
l = live fsck (lock down and test-only)
m arg = octal mode used when creating lost+found directory
n = assume a no response
p = just fix normal inconsistencies
q = quick check returns clean, dirty, or failure
r = rebuild catalog btree
u = usage
y = assume a yes response

# fsck.hfsplus /dev/sda2
** /dev/sda2
** Checking HFS Plus volume.
** Checking Extents Overflow file.
** Checking Catalog file.
** Checking Catalog hierarchy.
** Checking volume bitmap.
** Checking volume information.
** The volume archive appears to be OK.

looked good, same as diskutility returns
